I have combination acne prone skin - it's pretty bad and can get fairly dry but also gets really congested and end up really spotty with thick oily creams - I need something moisturising enough to prevent dryness but is not going to cause too much congestion.. really struggling, any suggestions? (No price range in mind - willing to spend whatever necessary to find the 'good grail' moisturiser!) grin

Was supposed to say 'holy grail' blush

This is great - light, non-greasy and very good for sensitive skin

Ive never been able to use moisturiesr as oily skin but recently been using temple spa range and this is amazing stuff

Also using the cleanser and toner. The purification mask is good too.

I went to my aesthetic nurse who sorted me out with a skinceuticals regime. Changed my life.

Obagi is also worth looking at.

Book in with an aesthetic clinic,

Avene hydrance optimale light is working brilliantly for me (combo acne prone skin)

La Roche Posay Efaclar Duo+ (can be found in Boots) is my go to moisturiser and has a legion of fans. Very reasonably priced too
